    I for one lose it sometimes in the middle of a morph. In general however it is not an absolute loss rather a temporary blip. It acts as a warning light. Generally there are 3 valid options when this happens.*

    1) focus more strength/willpower in maintaining the morph
    2) eject/don't stay the course
    3) switch roles/switch courses in mid stream/more extreme switches are often better in that it confuses the target(s). Also subtle and intricate role modifications are much more difficult in times of weakness when the emperor's(your) clothes suddenly vanish. Taking on a new roll may also be easier/more fun than another particular taxing role which is causing you to wane or otherwise not giving you what you want from the interaction .

    * other options are available but most of them are either invalid, ineffective or merely a modification of the above 3

    Imagine finding it so hard to fit in that you literally mimic those around you rather than being yourself

    Back in high school my mirroring was ridiculous, I was so far into some "ESTP" character I was putting out that people believed that's who I actually was

    People only liked me cause of the mirror, as soon as my introversion ran out of "social voodoo juice" it was back to being relatively unliked

    These days I try to be myself but often I'll catch myself saying the same phrases and doing the same body language as those around me

    It's a sort of defense mechanism for me, not many people like the real me and I worked that out quickly

    ^ Regardless of types and type reasoning, I was like that exactly as a teenager until about high school. Then I just didn't care anymore and all the friends I had, wondered why. It was all a game I didn't want to play anymore; that's why. Being somebody is a chore.
